I want to upload the ALIAS flash game trilogy to Archive.org, but I uploaded the first game to the site and the emulator is not showing up: https://archive.org/details/alias_202011

I know it will work, I tested it on the website they showed you to, maybe there was a step I accidentally skipped? Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I'd like to upload the rest of the trilogy, but I want to fix whatever is wrong first.

Hi. There's a lot of steps and they have no other place on the internet that needs them, so it's inevitable they get missed.

In the case of this item, two steps were missed:

setting "emulator" to "ruffle-swf"
setting "emulator_ext" to "swf"

That made it work great. I'll move it into the games collection now.

In the case of uploading Flash to the archive, this is the best document out there:
